I've owned this knife this it was released. Having wanted a Chaparral for a while, but the prices for the Ti, stepped etc were insanely high in my opinion. One of the smartest things Spyderco has done was to put out this LW version. This design, super thin for the pocket, with good ergos, with Spyderco's highly underrated bi-diectional scales, and add with it CTS-XHP blade steel. ALL for under $100!! With all said above, it's arguably the perfect EDC knife that gets A Lot if pocket time, deservedly - and it has some very solid contenders. To conclude, the LW Chaparral is a no brainer, particularly at it's price point.
